"Brisk Walking My A%@"! quote the funny response of Doc Eire to me at the SB today.

Quick Backstory: I injured my ankle last Sunday at the 10-Mile Corregidor Race. Julius said it's coz I didn't train for uphill runs before the race. Duh! Stupid Julie, stupid!

I've been glued to my bed the last 2 days. Only doing some mat Pilates yesterday in an attempt to do something physical. There's nothing worse than being injured. Yes, other than the pain, it just simply sucks not to be able to RUN! 2 days of no running for me was pure torture! I bonded with my bed. If I allowed that for one more day, I swear I'd slip into a freakin' coma!

So this afternoon, I told the folks at the takbo SB that I will just be "brisk walking" today. Hence, Doc Erie's response.

I knew I was lying. They all knew! LOL! Hey I did brisk walk for 1.3K then started jogging. Just short strides. Concentrating on my breathing, engaging my core, landing carefully on my mid-foot, and praying to high heavens.

The moment I would feel even the slightest hint of pain, I'd stop and brisk walk again. According to my Nike + sportband I ran 4.23 km on 12/9/2009 at 6:33 PM with a pace of 8'07"/km. See. I was a good girl. *bats eyelashes"

I Didn't feel any pain anymore. Thank you God! I am tempted to run again tomorrow but I really shouldn't push it. I just plan to do some Yoga and some Elastic Band exercises for muscle toning and to strengthen my ankles (see pic below. that is not me, ok?).

Another lesson learned the hard way. Train, train, train.♥.•:*¨*:•.♥
